Now, let's see.
Let's see, if we add up these deductions, we get...
Carry the three, divide by four...
Amazing.
It's absolutely amazing, but...
...under the right circumstances...
...a producer could make more money with a flop...
...than he could with a hit.
Yes, it's quite possible. If he were certain that a show would fail...
...a man could make a fortune.
Yes?
Yes, what?
What you were saying. Keep talking.
What was I saying?
You were saying that a producer...
...could make more money with a flop than a hit.
Well, yes. It's quite possible.
You keep saying that, but you don't say how.
Well, it's simply a matter of creative accounting.
Let's assume for a moment that you are a dishonest man.
Assume away.
All right. When you produced your last show, Funny Boy...
...you raised $2000 more than you needed.
But you could've raised a million...
...put on your $100,000 flop and kept the rest.
But what if my show was a hit?
Then you would go to jail.
See, rather than 100 percent of the show...
...you would've sold more than 1000 percent.
So if the show's a success, there's no way to pay off the backers.
Get it?
Got it.
So in order for our scheme to work, we'd have to find a sure-fire flop.
"Our scheme"? What scheme?
What scheme?
Your scheme, you bloody little genius.
I meant no scheme. I merely posed a little academic accounting theory.
It was just a thought.
Bloom...
...worlds are turned on such thoughts.
Don't you see, Bloom? Darling Bloom, glorious Bloom.
